Takeshi and Kentaro are two friends who have been together since they were infants. They were born in the same hospital on the same day, have shared every class in school and even vie over the same girl. However, soon the two friends become closer than they’d like when they discover they are the Chosen Ones that will defeat the powers of an evil being and his minions who are currently wreaking havoc on mankind. Together, the two merge and become a super fighter known as Barom One, capable of taking down monsters with ease. Can Takeshi and Kentaro band together to save the world?
Ikurou is a young man with problems: after a terrible car accident, he was captured by a seedy organization and implanted with a parasite known as Baoh -- a creature which bestows superhuman powers on its host, especially when mortally wounded. While being transported by train, he is accidentally set free by Sumire, young a psychic girl, and the two make their escape. With more of his humanity slipping away by the minute, and the organization hot on their tracks, will the two escape with their lives, or simply cause a bloodbath along the way?
Barom One is flat out bad. Baoh is also flat out bad, but it's so bad that it's hilarious and definitely worth a watch! Both involve an unlikely hero (or heroes) fighting bad guys with superhuman strength. You'll just have to check it out to believe me.
Ms. Jun Fudo used to be nothing more than a successful model, until fate intervened and thrust her unwillingly into the role of the Devil Lady. Once transformed, Jun becomes a murderous beast who destroys anyone (or anything) that opposes her; a power that the mysterious Asuka Ran wants to harness and use for an unknown purpose. With similar beasts emerging across the city and the body count piling, can Jun survive long enough to discover the truth behind her kin, and keep her human soul in control?
If you want to leave the camp of Barom One behind but want a similar story of a person forced to fight monsters, check out Devil Lady. A different tone and feel but will likely be enjoyed by the same people.
Shinichi Kuruma is an experiment gone awry. With the ability to summon a lion and bear from his body and superhuman strength, he is one of many 'New Humans' created by Shinichi's own father, Genzou Kuruma, who wants to control the fate of those who will inherit the Earth. Alongside a girl named Ayaka who was injected with Shinichi's special blood, Shinichi must stay out of the reach of the other New Humans and scientists who wish to use his lifeforce to revive God; but most importantly, he must find a way to exact his revenge on his father.
Majuu Sensen is horrificly bad yet so ridiculous it's almost worth watching. Barom One is equally as bad but somehow not as good as Majuu Sensen. Regardless, both have a similar tone and low production quality camp, though Majuu is insanely more graphic and gory than Barom One. I think fans of one would like the other (WHY GOD WHY)
